Question about easy qualitative graph

Here's what we want to graph.
Categories are snowfall, snowpack, temperature, and precipitation.
We want these to be on the y axis.
Values are above, normal, below.
We want these to be on the x axis with them going from left to right
(below, normal, above) with space to the left of "below".

Snowfall=above, snowpack=above, temperature=below,

This sounds very easy, but not sure how to plot this without using
numbers, which we aren't using.

Thanks for your time,

I suggest that you cheat!

Put your chart together using numbers (1=3Dbelow, 2=3Dnormal, 3=3Dabove) an=
then place text boxes with your desired descriptors over the top of
the numbers displayed along the X axis.

How do I make a graph ignore zero's in Excel 98
Hi, I set up a chart that graphs changes in quantity over time. It's source data comes from multiple different places in my spreadsheet, so, to make it easy to graph, I use formulas to set it out nicely.. namely, two rows, the top with date and the bottom with quantity. Problem is, that everyday I have to copy the quantity grabbing formula over to the next column. If I leave the formula pre-copied right across, it skews my trend line and makes my graph look terrible because it dives down to zero. If I don't copy the formula, I miss the latest set of data. Essentially, I just wan...

Mailbox move question
All, I initiated the movement of several large mailboxes 1 gig plus last night. It did not complete by this morning, so I canceled the move. They canceled just fine, and people have access to their email, but the server is SLOW. It isn't a processor thing either, it is strictly IO from what I can tell. Anyone have similar experience?

Question about CEdit and ENTER-TAB keys
I've a CEdit control inside a CDialog, and I want to perform a checkup in the value of the CEdit, but ONLY when the user hits ENTER or TAB. I guess that the TAB can be done using the ON_EN_KILLFOCUS(IDC_EDIT1, OnKillfocusEdit1) map. However, I have not been able to find an event for the Enter case. ON_EN_CHANGE(IDC_EDIT1,OnChangeEdit1) doesn't work for me, since I'd like to perform the check ONLY after an Enter, not anytime the text in the control changes. I also tried overriding OnKeyDown in the CEdit class, but the message is not triggered for Enter key. So, my question is: Is...

How do I add a bullet to a note on an excell graph.
I have created a text box on and excell graph with a note in side and want to add some bullets in front of a couple of items in the text box.

(Format -> Textbox -> Font Tab -> Wingdings) The Wingdings font family contains many characters that you could use as bullets. ---- Regards, John Mansfield "Chas.

extremely basic question about paragraph indenting
This is a terribly basic question but I can't find the answer in Word Help. How do I indent all the paragraphs of a Word document, not just one para... Michael Well, if you want *all* the paragraphs indented, then maybe you actually want to change the margins? So, for instance, that there is a 2-inch left margin on every page instead of a 1-in margin? To do that, go to Format | Document | Margins (assuming you are using MacWord). (This will partially affect the headers). Otherwise, you can indent more than one paragraph at a time by selecting more than one paragraph at a time, and th...

Double-Click question
I have a function that is called by both WM_LBUTTONDOWN and WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK messages. However the double-click behavior seems to depend on the state of the system (what exactly I don't know).

Thanks, E-Jo Define "state of the system". The double-click behavior is independent of any other consideration of system state unless your code is dependent on the system state. The only thing that th...

Question about x.y.z order

Thanks for help. If you entered the values as: (as many leading 0's as you need for the biggest number) Then your sort would work fine. An alternative is to insert as many empty columns to the right and then using data|text to columns|delimited by ...

Intersection point in graphs
All, I have 2 sets of data. One set is directly proportional to the data on x-axis and the other is is inversely proportional. I want to find out at which point on the x-axis do the 2 data sets intersect. I can see it graphically but I need some kind of a formula to spit out that intersection point. Any help, suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks, R.K. General answer: If we have two functions y1=f(x) and y2=g(x), we find the point(s) of intersection by setting y1=y2 [f(x)=g(x)]and solving for x. Specific case: directly proportional function y1=f(x)=ax indirectly proportional funcito...
